I highly recommend a walk in 'fageda' either in the spring or in the autumn. There is a pay car park at the entrance, but avoid weekends if possible, when it gets really crowded.

It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer, if you are walking or jogging or just have a tour with a bike... you will enjoy the light arriving to the ground through tree branches or leas (according to the time of the year)

You can walk, go in carriage, ride a bike... The forest, the gastronomy, the nature, the volcanoes, the romanesque architecture... Do not miss Banyoles lake, near Fageda.

We took a horse drawn carriage through this forest but there are lots of hiking trails for those wanting greater activity. The forest has a type of beech tree only found in two places on earth and they stand on the lava flow from the Croscat Volcano, the most recent to have erupted. It is all incredibly peaceful and eerie... More

Absolutely a must on ones check-list, however, getting to it in 37 degree heat and trekking 7km to get there in the warmth really made it a bad experience for us all. In the summer it looks like a regular forest, no biggie. However in fall it's supposed to be amazing.

We drove from Girona to see the craters recommended to us. This is a very special place, more beautiful in Autumn.

A great way to spend a few hours. Easy stroll through a lovely forest. Amazing light penetrating through the dense cover. Our trail came upon the co-op dairy which was a nice place to stop for ice cream. We should have picked up a map as some of the signage was confusing and inconsistent so we wasted a bit of... More

This is a very special place to get away from it all. Allow yourself to slow the pace and let the horse ride take you through a very special beach forest. Even more beautiful in Autumn.

It may seem like a normal forest to unexperienced eyes. However, la Fageda d'en Jordà wasn't meant to be there. The unique location of this valley, surrounded by the volcanoes and combined with the proximity to the Pyrenees and the coastal ranges has created the perfect environment for this forest to persist in an area it is not meant to...
